St. Laurent

Château Canon-la-Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Still a baby but WOW! Blend of Merlot (49%), Cabernet Franc (39%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (12%). Intensely aromatic featuring currants, tobacco dried purple flowers, fresh soil and a very pleasant green note. Deep black fruit on the pallet with hints of dark chocolate, roasted nuts, Asian spices and crushed stones. A touch of saline on the lengthy finish. Beautiful dusty texture. Medium-plus body. Nicely polished and well integrated. Powerful but elegant at the same time. Incredible! — 4 days ago

Château Monbousquet

Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Blend of Merlot (60%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). Dark garnet color. Aromas and flavors of black currant, blackberries, dark chocolate, beef jerky, black tea, figs and tobacco. Kevin Zraly mentioned Hoisin Sauce in his review! Mineral and wet gravel on the finish. Full bodied but quite pure and elegant. Excellent structure and length. Fabulous! — 4 days ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1988

Dark rubi robe and no sign of the age, nose of tobacco, blackcurrant, roasted pepper notes and a hint of flowers. Not a blockbuster like the 89 but this is elegant, complex, and oh soo good. No rush but probably no more development. Excellent bottle of classical claret. — 13 days ago

Severn this is for sure one of our favorites, we do carry many vintages and love it dearly.

And you’re right as S-E has an undeserved reputation for rustic wines. Nothing further from the truth.

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

I remember this wine being quite fruit forward upon release. Almost 20 years later, it opens with notes of dried and slightly cooked red fruits, leather, tobacco, earth and a dash of vanilla. On the palate, the 2001 Château Cos d'Estournel has a surprisingly sweet flavor profile and good concentration. The tannins are well integrated and take a backseat to the fruit. Although miles away from the quality level of recent vintages, the 2001 is still quite enjoyable. Drink now. — 5 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

This wine was love at first sniff. Medium garnet in color, a mesmerizing perfume of blackcurrant, ripe blackberry, sweet spice, wet tea bag and cigar box introduces the 2001 Château Ducru Beaucaillou. What an elegant, drop-dead gorgeous nose! Medium bodied and silky textured, the wine shines with remarkable balance and wonderful complexity. Drink now until 2030. — 5 days ago

Château Figeac

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Medium garnet, intense aromas of dried herbs, tobacco, dried strawberry, dried cherry, forest floor, farmyard and green bell pepper introduce the 2001 Château Figeac. Full-bodied, creamy textured and with rustic, ripe tannins, the palate belongs to a hedonistic, sexy beast of a wine built for a long life in bottle. Everything is in perfect balance. If spotted on a wine list at a decent price, I wouldn't hesitate. Drink now until 2035. — 5 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Medium garnet, the 2001 Château Léoville Barton is an archetype for cooler vintage, aristocratic left bank Bordeaux. It offers well-defined aromas of blackcurrant, dried black cherry, wood spice, mushroom, forest floor, tobacco and gravel. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is dominated by a massive tannin structure, excellent fruit concentration and a long, persistent finish. Drink now until 2030. — 5 days ago

A WOW wine. Extraordinary Bordeaux power and intensity at a reasonable price. The strong leather, earth, and licorice flavors and smooth tannins in the finish are perfectly balanced. A great buy. — 13 days ago
